-over LMA’s Saga

By R. Joyclyn Wea

The stage is finally set for legal arguments into the case involving embattled Liberia Marketing Association (LMA) President, Alice Yeabahn and Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor for today, November 14, 2018 at the Civil Law Court “B” on the grounds of the Temple of Justice.

The case was previously assigned for Tuesday, November 13, 2018, but  later cancelled for undisclosed reasons and  again re-assigned for today, November 14 to listen to arguments from both parties involved in the ongoing LMA’s saga.

This follows notice of assignment of both defendants and government’s lawyers in connection with the embattled LMA President’s petition seeking to overturn Vice President Taylor’s suspension on allegation of corruption.

Ahead of today’s legal argument, Madam Taylor’s legal team has filed a motion seeking to dismiss madam Yeabahn’s petition for judicial review as part of its October 23, 2018 sued to the court.

The defendant is determined to win the battle legally as such the Ministry of Justice had instructed the Assistant Minister for Litigation, Cllr. Wesseh A. Wesseh to lead her prosecution for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 proceeding at the civil law court.

Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor response was as the result of Judge Yusu Kaba’s October 12, 2018 writ of summon demanding her (Taylor) appearance in connection to the embattled LMA President’s petition for judicial review consistent with law.

It can be recalled that the Liberian Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor suspended the president of the Liberia Marketing Association of Liberia over allegation of corruption and vowed to conduct an audit on her administration.

Since this latest decision by the vice president, she had since failed to meet up with her promised but, Madam Taylor had since appointed her own people to steers the affairs of the association which is said to be in violation of the Act creating the association that states that it is the executive committee that has the power to appoint and dismiss something that is done through a national convention.
